Skid Plate and Wolverine Pan Heater Install
Attached are pictures for your review. The Trailhawk models have a different front clip, as you know. I had to cut the front small plate so it would fit. Without it, there was no front mounting methods to the lower radiator support. The two factory stamped steel wings had to be removed. The factory bolts I ordered had washers that were too small, so I had to add an extra to them. The new plate added real rigidity to the lower front end for sure.
I did not install these to go rock crawling, just for road debris, camping roads and ice mounds.
The Wolverine heater install went well. It is all sealed up, I think. It is a Model 9. I cannot believe Jeep does not offer a block heater on these.
There is an image with all the part numbers needed to do this install yourselves. Note that the NUTS, 20ea, are NOT needed. I did not use a single one. I put them in my nut bin.
At the lowest point, my ground clearance is now just over 7 1/2".
